Never waste a day or night
Posted July 19, a. EDT Updated July 23, a. They’re holding up the net to a new interactive driving range called Drive Shack that plans on opening its doors later this summer. I don’t think anyone has what we’re going to be able to offer. Even though the driving range is outdoors, Drive Shack will have two large heaters to keep golfers playing in the colder months.
The location will welcome different corporate groups with a few meeting rooms spread throughout the building, and a PGA Tour instructor will be on-site every day giving lessons. Raleigh’s location will feature 96 hitting bays, 32 on each floor, and over televisions, according to its website.
Each bay will have room to sit six people, have 14 Taylor-Made clubs and will be equipped with TrackMan technology that will provide real-time feedback during game play on ball impact and trajectory, measuring the ball’s flight from launch to landing.
This same feature will also allow players to experience many different courses throughout the nation, like Teton Pines, Willow Crest and Linfield National. The individual TVs at each bay will project the course and simulate where you should hit the ball based on the current course you’re playing at, Anaya said. For the non-experienced players, Drive Shack will feature different competitive golf games for all ages.
Shackjack, Drive Shack’s version of blackjack, will use the TrackMan technology to project different playing cards on television above each of the targets on the range to see who can get the closest to 21 the fastest. Even if you don’t hit a card on the field, the system will randomly assign card to you, Anaya said.
Monster Hunt will also use the technology, tasking children with the challenge to hit monsters on targets to save a princess. Community-designed mini golf course opens this weekend in Durham Raleigh will be the company’s second location to Orlando, Florida. Drive Shack released documents in hint that Raleigh might not be the only location in North Carolina that Drive Shack has a future in.
Charlotte, Winston-Salem and Greensboro are "leveraging Drive Shack’s strong real estate and entertainment expertise," according to these documents. Despite not opening yet, Drive Shack is already planning an event for October. The Better Business Bureau of Eastern North Carolina is hosting a tournament to help benefit their educational foundation and outreach programs. No specific opening date has been scheduled, but Godfrey anticipates Drive Shack will be open to the public before the end of summer.
